Four stars as is, five with the following changes: as others have noted, the dish is colorless, so I added one red and one yellow pepper cut into matchsticks; 2 carrots, grated; 8 oz fresh spinach; 2 oz chopped cashews, toasted; and a few shakes of red pepper flakes. I just sauteed the vegetables in a little olive oil and then added the sesame oil, chicken and marinade. Also, the chicken never browned because of the marinade - another reason to add some color to the dish. I also toasted the coconut in a teaspoon of butter for more flavor. I used brown rice and lite coconut milk, just to make it healthier. The brown rice needed more liquid, so I watched it carefully and added water as needed, stirring every 10 minutes so it didn't burn at the edges. When the rice was done I added salt to taste. What's great about the recipe as is, is the wonderful ginger and lime flavors and the decadent stickiness of the rice. I know with all these changes that the premise of a quick meal with few ingredients is lost, but I think this would be worth the effort.
